Closing moments of Super Bowl XXV vs. NY Giants: “Scott Norwood, rarely raises his voice above a whisper, he can fire the shot heard round the world now and win a Super Bowl with eight seconds to play…He’s made only six of 11 outside the 40. Here we go. Lingner ready to snap it back to Reich. Eight seconds to play. Norwood takes a practice swing with the right leg. Everyone up on their feet, watching intently. Norwood reaches down and takes something off his left cleat, now does it again. Still standing up near his holder, concentrating, waiting for the snap. Here we go, the Super Bowl will ride on the right foot of Norwood. Waiting for the snap, Reich, arm extended, puts it down, on the way, it’s long enough…and it is no good. He missed it to the right with four seconds to play. It was long enough but it was no good. And Norwood, walking slowly and dejectedly off the field. Scott Norwood missed a 47-yard field goal that would have won the Super Bowl for the Bills.”
I prefer the happy times…

Closing moments of the Houston Comeback Game in AFC Wild Card Game: “Here we go, 32 yards from the center of the field…It’s 38 all, the Bills can win it here. Reich puts the ball down, the kick is on the way, and it is good…the Bills have won it! The Bills have won it! They win it 41-38…Incredible! What a comeback by the Bills!…It is bedlam. It is pandemonium. It is fandemonium. It is fantastic…Do you believe it?”
Congrats…the season is not going to feel the same with only the Murph.
